Key Success Factors
From Footwear Industry:
Effective Quality Control
Economies of Scale
Establishment of Brand Names
•Between the athletic footwear industry and BSG, effective quality control and S/Q
rating are similar. Effective quality control benefits the S/Q rating in the simulation.
•In addition, Operational Efficiency from BSG can be obtained by acquiring economies
of scale as management reduces cost per unit by increasing capacity.
•Furthermore, Establishment of Brand Names from the footwear industry and
Advertising from BSG have similar connections. A major component of brand name

would like to see these numbers return to their year 12 levels. Management should
determine the causes of the decline in years 13 and 15 to prevent future fluctuation.
